Steep grains in a bag at 155 degrees for 30 minutes. Sparge with 1/2 gallon 170 degree water. Allow grains to drip into pot, but don't squeeze. Discard grains. Bring to a boil and add:

4lbs Alexanders Pale LME
4LBS LDME
(I substituted all XLDME)

1 oz perle 60 mins
1/4 oz perle 30 minutes
1/4 oz perle 5 mins
1/4 oz saaz 5 mins.

1 tsp Irish Moss 15 minutes or Whirlfloc

I used pacman yeast. If pacman is not available, try 1056 (American Ale yeast).

o.g. was 1.066
f.g. was 1.018

Edit- More "slight" changes!

For AG, I find that I like this recipe best:

10 pounds maris otter
1 pound Cara-Munich
1 pound Munich
1/2 pound crystal 40L

Mash at 156-158 for 45 minutes or until conversion. Sparge to get up to boil volume.

Hops:
1 ounce Perle 60 minutes
.25 ounce perle 30 minutes
.25 ounce perle 5 minutes
.25 ounce saaz 5 minutes

Shoot for an IBU range of 30-35. My perle hops have been all over the map as far as AAUs go- I have some that are 9.3% and some that are 6.9%, so you may need to adjust these amounts.
Yooper maybe a dumb question but when you say you substituted all for XLDME does that mean that you did not use the the Alexander pale LME and used a full 8lbs of XLDME

Wow. Rushed this with 10 days fermentation and two days carbing in the keg and it WENT! My people loved it. Thanks for sharing Yooper!

I just can't remember anymore, I"m afraid. I don't remember if I used just xtra light for the DME or for the whole batch. I've made it a number of times, and I just don't remember.

Yooper what do you like better between your lakefront ipa and you DFH 6o min IPA? Looking for a great IPA to try.

Oh, man. That's like asking a guy if he prefers blondes or redheads!

I love them both. I'm drinking the 60 min right now (at this very moment) but I love the Lakefront clone also. I also like the Surly Furious clone I've done. They are all excellent, but very different.

The DFH clone is more "bright", less sweet. The Lakefront has a bit of residual sweetness that plays well with the hops. They are just very different, but I'd say that I like them about equally.

I'm sure I didn't help you a bit.

No you did good I just brewed another batch of the dead guy clone since my family wiped me out and I think I'll do the Lake Front next. Thanks!

Doing the All grain version of this. LBS only had WLP001, I'm hoping this yeast is as good as pacman. Going to be brewing this on Friday.
